Welcome to Arianna's excellent adventure. On the heels of a small donation to the Democratic National Committee--the result of a lost bet--she's invited to spend three days, with access as full as an intern's, in the infamous Lincoln Bedroom. Like Alice's exploits through the looking glass, Arianna's weekend in the White House is increasingly surreal, constantly titillating, and brutally funny. In this sharp political satire, Arianna Huffington takes off the gloves as she takes on the dishonesty and cravenness of politicians of all stripes, leading us on a mind-bending tour through the White House looking glass.

Syndicated columnist (and frequent Politically Incorrect panelist) Arianna Huffington takes up political satire in this fictional account of her weekend as a guest in the Clinton White House. As interns scramble to assure her that everything is under control, and Al Gore gathers dust in the basement, Huffington gets her soundest advice from Socks, the First Cat. More than Primary Colors without the names changed, Greetings From the Lincoln Bedroom contains a sustained attack on the campaign finance scandals that have affected both parties and which, in Huffington's view, threaten American democracy at its core.From the Back Cover:
"This book is hysterical! If you shred only one book this year, make sure it's Greetings from the Lincoln Bedroom."
--Bill Maher, host of Politically Incorrect
"Greetings from the Lincoln Bedroom is like Alice in Wonderland if Alice were beautiful, impertinent, Greek, and evil."
--Al Franken, author of Why Not Me? and Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot
"Greetings from the Lincoln Bedroom is Athena's wisdom with a siren's tongue. Even bleeding hearts will find it brutally funny, with the guts to go for the jugular."
"Arianna Huffington is the best Greek import since stuffed grape leaves. Her take-no-prisoners stance leaves no one unscathed and answers once and for all why she had to leave Washington."
"As I read it, I snickered, chortled and, occasionally, roared with laughter. Once I actually hugged the book."
-- Washington Post
